Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo
Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo Review
Easy to miss despite its vicinity to Piazza San Marco, this Renaissance-Gothic palace is accessible only through a narrow backstreet that connects Campo Manin with Calle dei Fuseri. Built around 1500 for the renowned Contarini family, it is indefinitely closed for repairs, but its striking six-floor spiral staircase (bovolo means "snail" in Venetian dialect), the most interesting aspect of the palazzo, can be seen from the street.
